The University of Strathclyde was founded in 1796 and is located in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland. Strathclyde is dedicated to providing a first-class working and learning environment for its students and staff. The university continues to invest in its services and facilities, and has worked on several developments in recent years. For example, a new learning and teaching hub is set to be completed by the end of 2020! The building will accommodate innovative and flexible learning in a broad range of disciplines. Its modern facilities will include group working rooms, support for different education methods, and access to new technologies. The University of Strathclyde is also known for its Technology and Innovation Center. The center offers students and partnering industries access to new opportunities for research and development.

There are also a variety of historic and cultural sites in the region. Students will have access to public transportation such as buses, trains, and the subway to navigate the city.

Courses at the University of Strathclyde range from Levels 1 to 4. Level 1 courses are usually introductory, Levels 2 and 3 require some previous study, and Level 4 requires significant experience in the subject area. Study abroad students usually only take courses from Levels 1 to 3. Admission to Level 4 courses requires permission from the major department. Study abroad students are able to take courses from Stratchlyde's full range of faculties and departments. However, students are expected to take at least 50% of courses in their major subject area. Additionally, study abroad students usually register for a total of 60 Strathclyde credits per semester. Students in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Strathclyde Business School will typically take 3 courses worth 20 credits each. Students in the Science and Engineering faculties however, will usually take 4-6 courses worth 10 and 20 credits. This will normally translate to 3 or 4 US credits per course. Students will also receive provisional approval for the courses they list in their application prior to arrival. However, students should have alternative courses in mind as adjustments may be made upon arrival.

Early examinations are offered at the discretion of individual academic departments and must be requested on a case by case basis.
